Local Landscape Information

Hydrogeological Landscapes (HGL) categorise landscapes according to the features which affect the flow of water. Examples of these features include geology, soils, slope, regolith thickness, and climate. These features affect how a landscape functions, and what vulnerabilities and management opportunities it presents.

Based on such a HGL classification, the ACT is made of 25 distinct management landscapes. Each HGL contains a unique set of management issues requiring locally tailored management solutions in relation to issues such as dryland salinity, land degradation and wetland climate vulnerability. For each of the 25 HGLs in the ACT, there is a ‘salinity report’ and a ‘soil and land degradation management report’ that details local landscape functions, hazards, and management opportunities. This information can help land managers plan strategies and land use actions that are best suited to a landscape.
